Six firefighters in two trucks responded to a fire that destroyed playground equipment at Pig’s Field Park on Bandroom Lane in Pembroke on Saturday evening (April 10).

A Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said firefighters responded just after 8.20pm.

“On arrival fire crews saw a playground completely involved in flames.”

“The fire was extinguished by firefighters wearing breathing apparatus.

“The cause of the fire is unknown and is being investigated by the fire investigator.”

A task force was set up last month to investigate the recent spate of suspicious fires that gutted vehicles, including two fires at buildings in Pembroke in recent weeks.
